Open data will never solve poverty. But it can definitely help people who are working to reduce it.

Now in its fifth year, StartupPHL’s Call for Ideas grant program wants to help fund projects that do just that by using open data sets published by the City of Philadelphia.

In the past, the Call for Ideas program has issued small grants to organizations like Coded by Kids and TechGirlz.

Applications for the program are due by Sunday, Nov. 13. Got questions about Call for Ideas? Hit up Archna Sahay, the city’s director of entrepreneurial investment.

Above all, it’s important to keep this in mind:
